TRIBE Tips Tuesday - July 16 - I am the boss of me

Uncategorized Jul 16, 2019

I recently overheard a young woman say to her friends: I am the boss of me.

The rest of the conversation was lost as we moved passed each other, but those words continued to ring in my ears.  At first I thought she sounded whiny and petulant.  Like a typical young person that just didn't understand the magnitude of compromise that she was going to face as an employee in the work place.

Throughout the day, this phase continued to play through my mind.

I am the boss of me.

I began to hear these 6 words in a different way.   What exactly can it look like to be the boss of yourself?  The more I thought about it, the more appealing it became.  While it might not be possible to control everything that happens to me (and you), it is absolutely possible to control our reaction.

We are the boss of how we respond to the events in our lives.

We are the boss of how we allow the events in our life to affect us.

We are the boss of the decisions we make.

And we are absolutely the boss of our thoughts.  Which brought me right back to Lee's Thought Funnel.  If we begin by being the boss of our thoughts and beliefs, we will be led to be the boss of our outcomes.


I am beginning to think this younger generation is right in so many ways.  It is time to own being the boss of yourself.  Certainly give your employee, spouse, family and friends the best that you can.  But don't lose yourself in the process.

Be a great boss to yourself first.
